A Memorial

Rating: 4.1
Canonised when dead, cannonaded when in life,
Lofty your thoughts that savour of content
But loftier the craftmanship
More congruent in symmetry
Than ever are our warring senses-
All in silent watch -martyr.Not your lust

of martyrdom but the sculptor's chisel
carves a living name, world wonder made.Sad,
Time and with it, centuries fail to see
Not light of fulfilment in your eyes
But hollow worn in stone,
History's daintily cut lies-
Mere sensorium ruin.

Dejected and frustrated he leaves the world ashe remained under fire during his life. So what if he is recgnized as a graet man after his martyrdom. Many poets were recognized as a great poet after their death. A touching poem.
